March 14, 2020 РDue to the COVID-19 coronavirus scare and the unpredictability of venue management and public officials, we are postponing the St. Patrick’s Day Hamfest and West Texas Section Convention scheduled for March 21, 2020. We are exploring the options to host the event this summer in either June or July. The new date will be announced as soon as it is confirmed.

All pre-registration, registration and extra chance tickets for door prizes will be honored during the rescheduled event as well as table reservations for the swap meet.

The Elecraft K4 raffle drawing will still be held March 21.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
